    Measure the outside diameter (OD) of your seatpost. Your LBS will have a set of calipers.

    I'm at work and the bike is at home. I was fixing to order a clamp online. I can wait though, no biggy.

    the correct answer is....

    ...to measure the OD of your seat tube where the clamp goes. Not the seat post. I specify to take the measuement "where the clamp goes" because not all seat tubes are the same diameter along their entire length. Obviously, measuring the seat post tells you nothing about the outside diameter of the seat tube.
    Don't pay the $85 fee to ride land you own! Resist!
